"Sexting" scratches surface of risky behavior in teens

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (WFLX) - "Sexting" is associated with other risky behavior in teens. That's based on data on more than 1,800 Los Angeles-area high school students.

Researchers at the University of Southern California found 15-percent had sent or received sexually explicit text messages or photos. Those teens were also more likely to be sexually active and have unprotected sex.
